06 Jun Quench Your Thirst
Experience the charm and hospitality of South Carolina’s Old 96 District through the brewery and distillery scene. We’ve got 2 very good hot spots that will quench your thirst with creative concoctions for every palate:
Carolina Moon Distillery
This distillery strives to preserve a Southern tradition of distilling that remains “above the bar.” Founders/distillers David Long and Cal Bowie personally oversee each batch from start to finish, priding themselves on using only the heart of the batch rather than the whole run to yield the best spirits possible. Try the Ten G’s vodka—named after Edgefield’s contribution to South Carolina politics with 10 governors or lieutenant governors—or the Tally Ho Carolina bourbon, which pays homage to the fox hunts of Aiken.
Good Times Brewing is a brewery inside The Mill House in Greenwood, South Carolina. Good Times started off with a straightforward selection of beers like a blonde and Russian stouts, but quickly moved on to brews that source local ingredients like Not Your Granny’s Peach Cobbler, and locally hopped Migration IPA. Good Times keeps over 25 beers on tap with regulars like their Blood Moon IPA and rotating seasonal brews like King Jim’s Octoberfest. Check out their 10-barrel brew house expansion next door at 233 Maxwell Ave.
Whether you’re thirsty for an ice-cold ale, or looking for the kind of satisfaction that only comes from local moonshine, you’re sure to find it on South Carolina’s Freshwater Coast.
